Privileged (How To Teach Filthy Rich Girls)

Synopsis (Courtesy of
Recent Yale graduate Megan Smith comes to Manhattan with big plans for a career in journalism and even bigger student loan debt: $75,000. When she flails at her trashy tabloid job, she's given an escape hatch: tutor seventeen-year-old identical twins Rose and Sage Baker--yes, the infamous Baker heiresses of Palm Beach, Florida, best known for their massive fortunes and their penchant for drunkenly flashing the paparazzi -- and get their SAT scores up enough to get into Duke. Impossible job -- yes. But if she succeeds, her student debts are history. Unfortunately for Megan, the Baker twins aren't about to curtail their busy social schedules for basic algebra. And they certainly aren't thrilled to have to sit down for a study session with dowdy Megan. Megan quickly discovers that if she's going to get her money, she'll have to learn her Pucci from her Prada. And if she can look the part, maybe, just maybe, she can teach the girls something along the way.

Privileged offers a unique look at the relationships we develop in life. The three main characters, Megan, Sage and Rose, all have their own troubled relationships. Throughout the course of the novel they are all forced to face these problems, as well as the problems in their new relationships.
The main character, Megan Smith, will capture your attention from the beginning with her blend of humor, talent, and bad luck. The change in Megan, both emotionally and physically, from her arrival at Palm Beach to when she departs for New York is remarkable. With the first person view you get to see every subtle change in Megan’s personality and live through the ups and downs of her life with her.
What gives the novel even more a flare is the Baker twins, Sage and Rose. They’re personalities are so wild that you can’t help but love them. However what really catches your attention is their unique relationship with each other. Both girls have their own problems to work through, all of them stemming from their parents early death. Seeing the two discover and accept themselves, and each other, is a moving experience.
Privileged is a wonderful read full of lovable characters and lessons we can all benefit from.

4 Stars!
